Believe it or not but I haven't had a chance to sketch or paint outdoors.
I will be traveling for the next few weeks and have been busy packing.
I don't know if I will be able to post from all depends if I can find somewhere to use the internet. Please check back to see if I have posted. If I can get online I will be checking blogs to see what everyone is up to.

I did finish one last page for my "fake journal." I will leave you with that.

April 22 - Nashville, TN


  1. Sigh...Ireland! I'd so love to go! That sounds even more fun than your fake trip! LOL Have a great time Joan. Love that drawing of the cowboy boots!

  2. Thanks, Sherry! Hopefully I'll have good weather like I did in the fake journal. lol

  3. Dear Joan - I hope you have a beautiful trip to Ireland. Maybe you can post a few of your sketches from there (I am sure you will be painting and sketching your heart out). Now I need to mark Jack's Barbecue to be sure and visit when I get to Nashville again. God Bless and have a great time.

  4. Your fake journal has had a wide variety of subjects and images...all terrifically rendered! wow, a trip to Ireland! that is so cool...I'll bet you'll get a lot of photos and ideas for paintings! have a safe and fun trip...and thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog!

  5. Have a fabulous trip, Joan! I'll be looking forward to seeing all your paintings and sketches of Ireland!
